Lunchtime tick at Preem, Brick Lane. Such great food, and this was a perfectly acceptable fire abatement device. It were fizzy and yellow, and if you really try you can convince yourself that the phenolic stuff constitutes "flavor."

Golden look with average faint white head. Light malty and grassy aroma. Some refreshing sensation that gets watery almost inmediatly. Weak in taste and character. Light body, thin feel, average carbonation, short finish (thank god). Bad beer.

Write that 100 times you naughty boy!
The temples of Dinajpur, the tea gardens of Sylhet and the rain forests of Sundarban are all in Bangladesh, but this beer hasn’t been anywhere near them.
I am trying to drink round the world, this beer hasn’t helped.
The truth is I quiet liked the beer (for a UK brewed lager).
Brown 660ml bottle, best before 31 Mar 09, drank Feb 09.
The normal pale golden yellow that all lager/pilsners/helles usually appear like. the same small white disappearing head and the same non-aroma most have too. Thin looking, as again some lagers tend to do.
This beer however was a sweet version, not sickly, but even in the non-aroma there was a hint of something sweeter than normal.
It had flavour too, nothing huge, just a presence and a bodyfeel over and above your regular Curry cooling lager, maybe the 5.2% alcohol helped?
Even though I was disappointed to discover it came from Hepworth’s I enjoyed the beer.

Pours a clear and golden beer with a weak white head. The aroma is malt, sulphur, fruit, yeast, phenolic and banana. The flavor follows the nose. The palate is sweetness. Overall a boring beer.
